Certificate in Approaches to Proximate Analysis of Food


Food Analysis is a major requisite of food industry and a very important part of product development and quality assurance. It plays critical role in analysis of raw material as well as finished product. These analytical techniques are required for a wide variety of purposes ranging from testing suitability for purpose, through checking shelf-life or authenticity, to assuring legal compliance. It is important to have a fine understanding of the analytical methods to get correct results and help in decision-making. This level of knowledge is essential for professionals aspiring to build a carrier in food testing and those who wish to groom themselves for effective compliance of ISO 17025 aspects.

FFSQ, IGMPI has developed this short-term training program to provide knowledge about Food Analytical techniques for various parameters of proximate composition of food. The proximate composition of food includes moisture, ash, lipid, protein and carbohydrate content. These science-based procedures act as the basis for decision making in food industry for product development, quality control, and regulatory purposes. IS/AOAC methods of analysis for moisture, ash, lipid, protein, and carbohydrate are implemented here, focusing on the principle of each method, their application and sources of error.

Our aim is to make sure that after the completion of the programme each participant is proficient in the field of analysis of food and food products. They can perform proximate analysis of food and food product and respond to questions on a social, scientific and ethical level of Food Analysis. The participants would be ready to develop new approaches for complex, rapidly changing work- and learning contexts in order to make a contribution to the expert knowledge as well as relevant professional experience.
